This time from the Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht we will hear the Mass and some of the sacred
madrigals from the complete performances of Monteverdi's collection "Selve morale e spirituale."

Preservation of this program is made possible by a generous grant in honor of David Franklin Shaw.

NOTE: All of the music on this program is from the Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht 2000. It featured a series of concerts by the ensemble Ex Tempore directed by Florian Heyerick, featuring performances of the complete publication of Selva Morale e Spirituale by Claudio Monteverdi.

This program was made possible in part with assistance from Radio Nederland, the Utrecht Festival, and the Embassy of the Netherlands in Washington, D.C.
